Transgender is an umbrella term for anyone whose internal experience of gender does not match the sex they were assigned at birth (normally based on primary and secondary sex charateristics). Transgender people may experience discomfort or distress due to their gender not aligning with their sex, and therefore wish to transition to being the gender they identify with.
